On December 8th 2023, the Kaleido team was thrilled to host our Kaleido Quarterly Q4 webinar. This event marked the second edition in this exclusive series, aimed at providing our valued members with a comprehensive overview of our crucial quarterly research findings. Our expert analysts highlighted trending topics, ongoing industry changes, and potential development opportunities.
Our Chief Commercial Officer, Jon King, opened the session by providing an exciting overview of the upcoming insights that were about to be discussed. The Q4 webinar agenda covered 2024 roaming market projections, BCE attitudes and our Connectivity Vendor Hub eSIM, CMP and Private Networks updates.
Travel & Roaming Market Projections: 2023 Estimates & 2024 Outlook
Our Chief of Research, Nitin Bhas, then presented our audience with an overview of the latest roaming market projections for the coming year, covering forecasts for all major areas including Travel Recovery, 5G Roaming, IoT Roaming and IPX Traffic.
This update, included exclusive insights taken from our latest Roaming Data Hub report, a comprehensive source of mobile roaming data, covering over 60 global markets that enables clients to prioritise market entry and understand growth patterns.
BCE Adoption Insights: Operator
Next, it was over to our Market Research Analyst, Dawnn Dinsey, to share insights from our latest BCE report, “The Future of Clearing & Settlement”. The presentation explored recent findings on BCE deployment plans and challenges from Kaleido’s Q4 survey of over 80 Mobile Network Operators (MNOs).
Dawnn delved into the key drivers for migrating to BCE, alongside projections from Kaleido on revenue settlement vs TAP and BCE moving ahead. This insightful discussion allowed our members to gain a full understanding of the current operator attitudes towards BCE adoption.
“The requirements for launching BCE demand time, resources and funds, so it is certainly understandable that some operators do intend to essentially hold off launching BCE in the short term. However we do advise operators not hold off too long in laying that groundwork for what we know will be the inevitable replacement of TAP in Billing”
